Blast from the Past: Crocheted Earrings & Accessories 2006

The first time my creations were actually sold in the market was in 2006. My friend Alessa had an idea of selling crocheted accessories through her line, "Accessories by Alessa." We brainstormed with patterns and colors and came up with great pieces. I didn't think I could make money out of a hobby, well, it didn't really cross my mind that people out there would be interested in what I was doing :)
It was definitely a successful run. Thanks as well to Alessa's network in the fashion industry, it got featured in magazines such as Preview, Mega, Yes!, and Girlfriend.
Even Pia Guanio wore one of our earrings for the Enervon ad. All pictures courtesy of Alessa Lanot.
I started working on a new collection under my own line. Watch out for the new pieces in the near future!
